Vesa-Matti Lappanen (violin)
Andrew Thomson (violin)
Nicholas Hancox (viola),
Andrew Joyce (cello)
Samuel Jacobs (horn)
Ian Wildsmith (horn)

PROGRAMME:
Beethoven ~ String Trio in E-flat major, Op. 3
Mozart ~ Horn Quintet in E-flat major, K407
Beethoven ~ Sextet in E-flat major. Op. 81b.

Vesa has gathered an impressive group of friends, all principal players from the NZSO, to perform an exciting programme that shines a light on the sensational horn playing of Samuel Jacobs. As well as performing perhaps the most cherished piece of chamber music with horn, Mozart’s quintet, the group will be joined by a second horn player Ian Wildsmith, also from the NZSO, to play Beethoven’s Sextet in E-flat major. The horns make this a rich full work.

Christopher’s Classics
